just thought if the corsair backplate would work it might be easier to leave it there

last time i tried to take an h50 backplate off it was severely stuck on there with the sticky pads and i had to use a lot of force to get it off
The only real problem that I see is is the height of the 4 female thread points, as, if there is any difference to the h320 back plate then the tension wouldn't be right.

The screws are designed to stop at the motherboard when there is enough tension, as best I can tell.

I would say that it is not common at all. I took apart my unit (see my earlier post) due to other problems and noticed how well put together the pump block is. I stand by my statement that the quality of the block played a big part in my success in (unprofessionally) repairing it. I have disassembled a couple of Corsair (Asetek) pump-blocks and they don't really compare quality wise. The new Corsair H100i is probably close, at least it looks like it in Martin's review.

I'm happy to report that my fixed unit still hums along nicely now a month later. The machine is in a closet, usually the ambient temp run a little higher. The "outdoor" reading on that cheap thermometer is the floor intake in the closet.

I've already bought the H220 before the rather stupid patent thing and would like to know what would be the best computer case to mount it on the top. I was going for the Define XL r2, but found that the clearance on top was pretty tight and some mobo VRM might interfere. I'm getting a Maximus VI Formula and fear it's going in that category. I looked around and found the Switch 810 which has some ridiculous space all around for WC, but many reviews feel the case is cheap because it's pretty much all plastic.

Will the Define XL r2 fit everything without a problem? Should I get over the plastic and get the Switch 810? Any other case recommandation would be really appreciated.

I don't have the 810, but my NZXT Phantom 630 has enough metal where is counts.
